You'll still get the same performance from the SSD whatever it's used for, but you're not taking best advantage of it if it's not used to boot into Windows. m 0 l FreezeRay January 5, 2014 12:50:39 AM A Raptor would be fine for most people, but even the slowest SSD will be much faster than your Raptor.
